hellothisisalex is Melissa Creasey and Mark Prier, two new-school analogue kids from smalltown Ontario. Together, they write bizarre electro pop soundscapes infused with whimsy, non-linear narrative, and a love of pop music and experimental audio. In February 2001, they christened themselves 'hellothisisalex,' both a greeting and being (with both male and female reproductive organs, no less).

hellothisisalex is Melissa Creasey and Mark Prier, two new-school analogue kids from smalltown Ontario. Together, they write bizarre electro pop soundscapes infused with whimsy, non-linear narrative, and a love of pop music and experimental audio. In February 2001, they christened themselves 'hellothisisalex,' both a greeting and being (with both male and female reproductive organs, no less). Their music has been described as "simple, yet effective, and without any pretension" by Electroage, and as "fuzzy analogue tones and jaunty pop beats" by Ben Rayner of the Toronto Star. The music the duo write is primarily electronic, filled with raw analogue synths and otherworldly noises carried by melodic bass lines.

Substancezine places their sound "somewhere between Isan and minimalistic Air without the drug problem". The duo has been featured on EPs, compilations, MP3-only releases, and four albums-'the accidentals,' 'the anachim thorn,' 'the canadian spelling program,' and 'across the river twin.' They performed at MUTEK 2002 in Montréal, Québec alongside Felix Kubin and Nova Huta. In 2004 they re-scored an old National Film Board of Canada film called 'The New North' for the Minus 40 project. They also released an EP called 'The Stump Act' in 2006. Right now they are composing the music for their next album and working on various side-projects: Melissa is writing her Master of Science thesis on Black-throated blue warblers, and Mark is making art and working on a solo album.
